    Yep!..Glen-L.

    I don't think I have any pics (had one or two that went with the house) of my first true "race boat"..a 1971 13' GW-Invader with a "white" Merc 700 6-cylinder OB on the transom. Blue metalflake...everything was metalflake back then. 'course back then I had hair too...and a mullet...

    I've only watched boat racing on television a few times but isn't 15' a little short?

    well there is YOUR next Project ...
    We’re tempted to suggest a conspiracy here — but it’s just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply can’t conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.

    Not me...Couple different contractors doing it. I'll just do the wiring when the time comes.

    Refresh my memory...what was it you pointed me to last year? I recently turned down a free Checkmate hull because it's 17 or 18' and I don't have the right engine(s) for that size and class.
    It was a sweet 16 with a Holman in it, down in Florida on Craigslist for sale.. You said you had enough projects... #sadface
    No one cares.

    Yes, I know. That's why I sent you the linky....
    . But it was certainly not a correct craft with a side oiler in it..

    My Champ originally had a side-oiler in it. New engine is a 428 but with all the Holman-Moody externals put back on..everything except the exhaust logs and risers. I recently scored a nearly perfect set of H-M original aluminum logs and risers for the 302 H-M in the Donzi, but have had a heck of a time finding a good set for the 428. Got some old Nicsons on it for now.
